Almost all vehicles made, over the past 20 years, have a thermostat around 196 degrees.
So 198 to 205,210 on a hill

99 GMC 3500 intermittent stalling when running at normal operating temperature. Generally occurs in traffic but has happened on the highway. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Stalling when the engine is running could be faulty spark.look for faulty cables also.
Change the plugs and cables if you have nt done that during last maintenance

99 ford taurus starts up but doesnt drive more than 10 miles per hour and temperature starts to rise

maybe a coolant thermostat that is faulty, a collapsed or perished hose..

It could also indicate cylinder head gasket/cylinder head problems.

Ten miles is about the correct distance for a car engine to reach normal operating temperature. If your temperature gauge continues to rise beyond normal overheating .. you risk causing a lot of damage to your engine.

If you're not sure what to do or look for - get somebody to check it out for you

I hear a ticking/rattling sound somewhere in or around the engine of my 2006 suzuki Forenza. The faster the acceleration, the faster the sound seems to be. Any idea what would it be? This is my first...

Sounds like your valves are knocking. They can be adjusted pretty cheap.
Or you could do it yourself. Basically you drive the car to get it up to normal
operating temperature, then remove the valve cover and use a feeler gauge
to measure/adjust the clearance between the rocker arm and the camshaft.
You would need to know the proper clearance clearance.

If you get a Chiltons manual for your car at Oreillys, it tells you how to do it.
And it tells you the clearance you need that i mentioned before.

But an engine/head shop should be able to do it for a reasonable price.

I have a suzuki grand vitara 2004 1.6 petrol and i have put a new thermostat on car and the temperature gauge is still rising when i run the car for aprox 1 hour and do 70 miles per hour, the fans are...

First check your fuses and relays for the fan. Next, you can run 12V directly from the battery to the fan, if it operates, you can eliminate a bad fan as a possibility of the cause and then test the fan's thermostat switch. If the radiator is sufficiently corroded it will also cause the symptoms you describe since part of the cooling surfaces will be effectively blocked off. The chance that the water pump is causing the problem is very slim. You can verify the pumps operation by starting the engine with the radiator cap off and allowing it to get up to operating temperature. When it's at operating temperature, you should see the coolant flowing through the radiator; it's the water pump that causes the flow through the radiator. If you see the coolant flowing, your pump should be fine.

99 breeze 2.4 blows mild heat cools quick turn off blower wait two min turn bower back on and heat for a min again cools right off

Sounds like the heater coil valve is not opening all the way if your car reaches the normal operating temperature or there is a blockage in the heater coil. If it is reaching normal operating temperature look on the engine firewall and locate the heater control valve. It will have the 3/4 inch heater hose attached to it and you will see a cable connected to operate the valve. Manually open the valve and see if this produced heat. Sometimes the cable gets stuck or bent and needs replacment.

How to flush coolant from 04 suzuki verona, I saw

easiest way is to open drain plug on the radiator let it drain in bucket till it stops refill with water until you get all the coolant out. next time you refill put a cleaner in it and run it down the road at normal operating temperature for about 30 minutes let it cool off and flush it a couple more times with just water when it is clear add antifreeze in a 50/50 mixture one bottle antifreeze one bottle of water.

Just whant to check automatic transmission oil with out going to dealer and where can i find the tool for the trans oil plug

ATF level is checked when the engine is running and the transmission is at normal operating temperature. Using the dip stick, determine the level. The level should be within or near the upper HOT mark.

there is a point in operating temperature where the engine computer will cut the a/c compressor clutch to assist in avoiding overheating. When you go through another key cycle,this computer re-evaluates the temperature and allows a/c clutch operation once again if temperature is within operating range

What's the normal operating temperature for a 2.4 petrol? The 99 A4 I have runs at 90c and gets hotter in slow traffic. Fine on open road.

Could have a semi blocked radiator , Might pay to get it flushed.
Also check that the Fan/s sre coming on.
Hope this helps
